so i wrote about cybill.
and was surprised by the e-mail, the volume of them.
clearly, i'm not the only 1 wondering: where the hell is cybill's new show today?
if a network had 1/2 a brain, they'd find a way to work cybill into a sitcom or dramedy immediately.
there is a real audience for a cybill-led tv show. i'm talking an immediate audience.
i doubt she'll want to do it but i got so many e-mails that i called back my friend (we worked together when i had my own agency) to suggest that when they get to the advertising stage, they consider using cybill in some way because she's so widely popular.
i also called some other friends in advertising to make the suggestion as well because the e-mails just were so specific about favorite episodes of cybill's 2 hit tv shows and what it meant to them. and there is just a huge bond between the audience and cybill that i honestly wasn't aware of.
i don't mean that as an insult. i've met cybill before and found her to be funny and smart. and i liked both of her shows. and on screen, i think she's a great actress. but i didn't realize the identification bond that exists between her and so many people. if i'd known of that, while i was still in the business i would have been trying to land her for accounts. my bad. (trying to land her doesn't mean she'd do it. other than loreal, i'm not remembering any ad campaign she did.)
i've got to finish the e-mails. when i do, i'll write another post about the show.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
